Archant

Bars, pubs and clubs in Norwich have rallied around one of the city’s most respected doormen after he was violently attacked while at work.

Dave Aslett has been described as one of the city's most experienced and well-loved doormen by venue owners after the assault in Norwich.

Regency Security, Mr Aslett's employer, said Mantra, on Prince of Wales Road, Bond, on Tombland, and Fetch, also on Prince of Wales Road, would all be holding collections for Mr Aslett.

The company posted on Twitter: "Following the horrendous attack on our door supervisor Dave Aslett, the following G&J leisure venues, owned by Gary Powers, MD, Regency Security, will be holding a collection on Sat PM to show our support and to wish Dave a speedy recovery."

They went on to thank Steve King, owner of Stadia in Norwich, for also holding a collection in his honour.

Meanwhile, the Garden House, on Pembroke Road, will also be holding a collection over the next few weeks for Mr Aslett, who they said had been victim of a "disgusting incident".
